Did you ever ask yourself how this kind of new thing - Blockchain - work? Did you ever ask why it is such a hype and why it should revolutionize the way how we interact with parties, that we don't know? Until today Blockchains are just a big hype especially with crypto-currencies, but there are coming more and more severe applications where you need trust between parties that do not know each other. To see the potential about blockchains you have to understand it and we as programmers can understand a thing entirely as soon we have done it with our own hands. And this is it, what this workshop is all about: We create our blockchain. Everyone is coding and after we finish we will mine and try to destroy the blockchain - the later is a hard thing to do, because it is self-healing as we will see. Are you afraid that you can't type fast enough? No problem. There are nine checkpoints where you can type 'git checkout ...' and you are synchronized with the presentation. There will be a short theoretical part at the beginning where everybody has time to start the system followed by about 2 hours of coding followed by mining and testing the system in edge cases.
